Read full description of the books:
I wasn't sure what to think of this at first, since it began with a reconstruction of the events of Boudicca's last battle which read like fiction. However, I appreciated that in the first chapter the author was very upfront about the sources used (and the lack of sources), and about the problem of tainted sources. The analysis of how accurate the information was helped me believe in Trow's good faith in doing this research. The reliance on racial stereotypes/archetypes made me wince a bit, because we do know so little about the Celts from their own point of view.
I think Trow did well with the dearth of available information, and tried very hard to be fair to Boudicca: the book is very much on her side versus the Romans, without any suggestion of an alternative (could Boudicca have provoked the Romans?).
It's an interesting read, and well written.
